To M.G. (Wherever She May Be)
by John Mellencamp



I was watching a movie the other night on T.V.
The actress reminded me of you
Her attitude, the way that she smiled
She was doin' a part, girl, like you used to do
I do believe you played it better
If it wasn't better, it was just as strong
I would've called you up on the telephone that night
But somehow, girl, it'd been all wrong

I heard you married a stranger
In a horse and carriage that was covered with gold
Well, you wanted to be different and still fit in
I wonder if you feel different at all now that you're older
Hope you didn't lose that innocent laughter
Oh God, I hope time didn't take that away
All those junior high nights underneath the front porch light
A good Catholic girl during the day

[Chorus]
Oh, oh, just watching the time grow
Old enough to know that these memories can't hurt a thing
Oh, oh, just watching the time grow
If I saw you today, girl, I wouldn't even know ya

Well, I know it wasn't that big of a love affair
But, boy, it sure seemed like one back then
When I parlay the memories into their proper places
I can see, now, we were no more than friends
Oh, your kisses sure tasted sweet
But I guess any kiss tastes sweet at fifteen
I just hope your touch is as warm to your ol' man
As it seemed like it was to me

[Chorus]
